Tower of Babel

Versions: #1#2#3
We’re chess pieces in a game of power
It’s necessary to learn how to live life in harmony
Because while some are dying of hunger
Others are wasting money and time in senseless things, that’s obvious
This is a call and listen carefully because time is running out
Cut him loose!
Listen brother
 
Take a look around
Everything goes wrong and everything is backwards
And maybe there won’t be a second chance to look at the red roses of Eden
Take a look around
The earth beneath our feet is opening and you’ll fall,
Doesn’t matter where you are,
Onto the ruins of the tower of Babel
 
There’s nothing left of our pact
We didn’t give you what you were expecting
A rotten heart is now bleeding in pain
Por timonel un grupo de invidentes (no idea !)
Who kept silence in this ocean of people
Nothing matters anymore, nothing is in place
You can breath in so much loniless of tears in the wind
And there’s a cross in the middle of the procession
 
Take a look around
Everything goes wrong and everything is backwards
And maybe there won’t be a second chance to look at the red rodes of Eden
Take a look around
The earth beneath our feet is opening and you’ll fall,
Doesn’t matter where you are,
Onto the ruins of the tower of Babel
 
It’s necessary he tells you about the issue,
There are problems, or you save yourself or you condemn yourself
Some drown their pain in alcohol,
Some cut open their veins on the streets
Row, cause the boat is on fire, I see blood on the scene
You gave me to Christ and I wear his emblem,
I withdraw myself and I change the system
 
Blind, stupid and indifferent ones
A feverish mass of the rich and the poor
Cutt off grass, but noone knows where it goes (this is probably some kind of expression I don’t know, sorry)
We’re all pieces of a wicked game of chess
To gamble with our bodies in the open
This game of power sows fire everywhere
 
Mankind gifted with reason: a species threatened with extinction
Scruples have died and only the echo of dissapointment is left
 
Listen carefully because your time is running out
To open your eyes for this hell
You stay indifferent to this suffering
Because you’re a prisoner of your own egoism
Don’t turn your back on the weeping of the people
Being indifferent is killing them
Don’t turn away from the storm
Because in the end you’ll be presented with the bill
 
I want a clear sky in the entire world !
 
Sometimes suffering teaches you how to live,
Stop pretending, don’t wait to die,
In this concrete wilderness you have to resist,
Start sharing to receive
 
Take a look around
What are you going to do, they live in war
I speak for my country, I don’t want the flag to go down
Take a look around
What are you going to do, they live in war
I speak for my country, I don’t want to see them go down
 
Take a look around
Everything goes wrong and everything is backwards
And maybe there won’t be a second chance to look at the red rodes of Eden
Take a look around
The earth beneath our feet is opening and you’ll fall,
Doesn’t matter where you are,
Onto the ruins of the tower of Babel
 
Listen! Wake up and defend your values, brother
Don’t let your feelings die and focus on doing good
Spain! They join together for this story
